Young, flawless, athletic, perfect proportions: Idealised images, especially of female bodies, conveyed by the media shape our self-perception and make women in particular feel uncomfortable when they look in the mirror. But where did these ideals of beauty originate? How far back do they go and what does a journey through art history teach us?

In the third episode of the podcast “Klub Koralle” of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Claudia Kryza-Gersch, curator of Renaissance and Baroque sculpture at the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, and Saralisa Volm, actress, film producer, director, curator and author of the book “Das ewige Ungenügend”, talk about Titian, Rubens, Giorgione, about selfies, self-empowerment and “body neutrality”, about the big question of why we still see ourselves as unfinished – and what this has to do with the age of antiquity. As always, the “Klub Koralle” podcast is also a short foray through the SKD collections.

The podcast will be hosted by Holger Liebs, Head of Media and Communication at SKD.
